The Heritage · A Daughter’s Memories of Louis Bromfield
By Ellen Bromfield Geld · Foreword by Lucy Dos Passos Coggin

Louis Bromfield, the Pulitzer Prize-winning writer, established one of the most significant homesteads in Ohio on his Malabar Farm. Today it receives thousands of visitors a year from all over the world; once the site of the wedding of Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall, it was a successful prototype of experimental and conservation farming.

“For these things he will be remembered: the beginning novels, candid, sure, probing; the open-air, uninhibited rich life he led and taught others to lead; the man himself, shy, natural, generous, exuberant, contrary, as eager for a romp with his dogs as for an evening at the opera. They constitute the 'heritage' revealed by Mrs. Geld with warm affection.”
